BY MICHELE HERMAN | One supermarket door closes and another opens. At the north end of the West Village, we have lost the Associated despite spirited protests. But at the southern end of the neighborhood, in the Archive Building, the new Brooklyn Fare has a firm opening date of July 22. I’m just back from […]
